The Importance of Mentoring Training

Mentoring can be a very positive experience for the employee being mentored and the mentor themselves. By passing on their greater experience, mentors play a crucial role in accelerating the development of the mentee and keep valuable knowledge circulating.

There are many skills that can contribute to a successful mentor/mentee relationship. Training gives a clearer picture of what these are and how they help.

The terms “mentoring” and “coaching” are often used interchangeably, but there are differences between the two. Mentoring is essentially non-directive, focusing on the mentee’s overall professional development. Coaching tends to be a more hands-on relationship, focusing on specific outcomes and measurable improvement.

A good mentor will be experienced in their area of expertise, so they have valuable skills and information to pass on. The skills that make them most likely to be good mentors include being good communicators, the ability to give valuable feedback and flexibility, as the mentor/mentee relationships develops over time.

Effective mentoring can result in a mutually beneficial working relationship between more experienced and less experienced colleagues. It ensures valuable experience is passed on and made use of by people newer to the industry and company. An effective mentor can make a big difference to a mentee’s career trajectory.
